Entry 024: February Assessment

Initial Feedback from Presentation:

  • Confident and articulate presentation, well planned for the time with clear and cohesive slides. Good aesthetic that was consistent throughout. Well explained and documented with good imagery. Really nice photography/ editing/styling.
  • Reflective feedback:
  • PUSH minimalism/ maximalism - make the maximal MORE and the minimal much more controlled/refined. Push the two to the extreme to create a really strong contrast.
  • Colour Palette- I reflected on this myself, during my presentation, but Sean and Debbie both agreed that working on the dark/ minimal side of the palette was one of the biggest areas I needed to work on- to bring in the sophistication/ elegance/ nuanced tonality I want to create. To balance the collection.
  • Unexpected Materials! another big area of feedback was to keep pushing my materials and really start experimenting now with some really exciting and unexpected things. 
  • Keep working on the mannequin - I think we all agreed how much this had pushed my project forward significantly so I just need to continue this but the keep considering scale and placement. I also need to consider draping a background fabric on to the mannequin before I start building my placements so they aren't just being photographed on the calico backing- really consider the relationship between the base fabric and the design - as per my research images. 
  • Although I've been very focused on creating jewellery/ accessories pieces- we spoke about the definite possibility of producing some very outlandish embroidered/embellished placements on garments.
  • Examples below of a few of my presentation slides:
